2020 has been nothing but unkind to us. With the global pandemic hitting us (almost) out of the blue, suddenly trying to grapple with the uncertainty we were pushed into became overwhelming.
But thankfully, there are rays of hope peeping through the dark clouds of doubt and fear. As life is slowly starting to go back to normal, and things are beginning to look a little optimistic, many businesses are resuming, with certain precautions set in place. Similarly, traveling, which came to a halt as most borders shut down, is restarting too. It has become crucial to plan your trips with the help of a travel advisor who is more familiar with the travel landscape and the ongoing changes. Thus, in this article, we list some of the reasons why you absolutely should book your next trip with a travel agent. I've also included a video.
1. Avoid Information Overload
One quick google search for a destination reveals thousands of results and going through all is an impossible task. Not to mention, there’s always a risk of not getting what you paid for. A travel agent saves you time by personally reading through reviews, providing their personal feedback as they travel all the time. They are the experts in this field with many connections which can easily help you find the best experience suited for your needs.
2. Saves Time, Money, Energy
If you value your time (and money), then booking a trip with a travel agent is a no brainer. Traveling itself may be fun, but the process of planning the perfect trip is a whole other difficult challenge. A travel agent knows the entry requirements due to COVID-19, the best destinations to travel to right now, highly rated excursions, best rates and can help you craft out the best experience without all the hassle of planning.
Travel Agents are constantly in the loop, getting feedback from clients, and are in touch with hotels, restaurants, and other service providers that you may need on your trip. They have certain perks and accesses that a normal traveler does not. With their connections, they can pull strings and get you last minute deals and perks that you may not be able to on your own.
Travel Agents add a human element to your vacation that a search engine cannot. Since most of them are travelers themselves, who have been in the industry for a while, they truly give each booking a personalized touch. They get to know you, your specific travel needs and preferences and help you personalize your trip so you can get the best bang for your buck.
Because they are in the industry, travel agents develop a familiarity that you cannot. They are always aware of industry sales and specials, they have access to countless luxury resorts and exclusive excursions that the average traveler may not be familiar with. If you are looking for a personalized vacation experience with a professional that will do the research for you and book every element of your trip, where you’ll get the best value then you will definitely want to contact me to plan your next getaway.
